Madrid's Canales out amid Higuaín concern

Sergio Canales is out for a month and will miss Real Madrid CF's final Group G encounter against AJ Auxerre with a left ankle sprain while Gonzalo Higuaín may have to undergo an operation.

Real Madrid CF striker Sergio Canales will miss Wednesday's final UEFA Champions League group encounter against AJ Auxerre with a left ankle sprain.

The 19-year-old – who has made seven appearances for Los Merengues since his summer move from Real Racing Club – will be out of action for a month after picking up the knock during a training session. However, Madrid will top Group G regardless of their result in midweek.

Meanwhile, Madrid's medical department continue to express concern over striker Gonzalo Higuaín who has been sidelined with a herniated disc since 20 November. The club will be seeking a second opinion from specialists before deciding whether to operate on the Argentinian international.
